Princess Reagan turns 5!

Happy Birthday, Reagan.

Yesterday Reagan turned 5. We celebrated it by having a princess party with some of her friends. The party started at 10:30 am. As the girls arrived, they donned sticker earrings, pink boas and big jewel rings. The girls then made a tiara, we painted finger nails, strung beads, played, decorated door hangers and book marks and ate lunch. We had cupcakes and ice cream and then opened gifts. It was fun to hear the girls talk and play. After dinner we had more cupcakes and opened the rest of her gifts. We had a fun day celebrating our princesses growing up!

And the results are in...

Last night we decided to not spend the evening watching the media commentary on the election. Instead we decided to go bowling. We had so much fun. We all displayed our individual technique. Reagan has the flare release. Gabby was the drop and roll followed by a little air kick to get it rolling. Neither of girls had enough force to make the machine reset between balls. It also took about 10-15 seconds for the ball to reach the pins. A few times we had go down the side of the lane and give the ball a little nudge to get it to the end. Gabby actually did pick up 2 spares. At the end of the night, Gabby did not want to give up her bowling shoes. They said that was a first.

Just out for a chat....

Happy Halloween!

What a great day!!! The day was packed with fun and the weather was absolutely gorgeous. Reagan's day started with a party and parade at school. They played games and then walked around to a couple of classes for the parade, the parents tagged along.

Later, we carved our pumpkins. Gabby wanted a "mad" pumpkin and Reagan wanted a "smiley face" pumpkin. After we carved the pumpkins, we spent a couple of hours outside enjoying the wonderful fall day.

The girls' friends, Lauren and Todd came over for some trick or treating. I don't think we planned it, but all the kids were water related, 2 oceans, a mermaid and Nemo. After we came back to the house, Gabby checked out her treats and then wanted to pass out candy. So Gabby and I sat outside and she passed out candy while Bill and Reagan ventured out to other areas of the neighborhood for more trick or treating. We had candy for about 450 trick-or-treater and ran out at 8:00...and they were still going strong. We hope you all had as great a day as we did! Happy Halloween!
